ueen Elizabeth, who suffers from mobility issues, did not attend the service at St George’s Chapel in the castle grounds, a staple of the royals’ calendar.
William and Kate, also known as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, were accompanied by two of their three children: Prince George, 8, and Princess Charlotte, 6.
Also present were the Queen’s youngest son, Prince Edward, with his wife Sophie and their children, and Princess Eugenie, daughter of Prince Andrew.

The Queen, who turns 96 on Thursday, is celebrating her platinum anniversary this year, marking 70 years on the throne.
She reduced public duties on orders from her doctors since spending a night in hospital in October and also had a bout of Covid-19 in February. She attended a memorial service for her late husband Prince Philip last month and has continued to meet virtually with diplomats and politicians.
On Thursday she was visited by her grandson Prince Harry and his wife Meghan – the first time the couple has visited the UK together since stepping down as working royals and moving to California in 2020.
Harry and Meghan visited the Queen in Windsor, 20 miles west of London, on their way to the Netherlands for the Invictus Games.
Harry is the founder and patron of the international athletic competition for wounded or ill military and veterans.
